The Elks is an awesome organization. I’m not a member but have been on the receiving end of their generosity.
A few years back while helping to escort a fallen Marine to his final resting place, the Local Elks lodge opened its doors to around 200-300 bikers so we could get inside and cool off on 100 degree day. They also provide a lunch that nobody knew they were doing. The town along with many members of the lodge also relived many of us while standing a flag line so that we could get in some shade and a drink of water. If any of you are members of the lodge in York Ne. I thank you so much for what you did that day. For those that aren’t, if you get close to that lodge stop in, say hi and, listen to the stories of that young Marine.
